Overnight Brush Fire in Long Beach Quickly Extinguished
Motorists spotted a brush fire after midnight last night as they traveled along the 91 Artesia Freeway and the 710 Long Beach Freeway and alerted the California Highway Patrol, reports the Press-Telegram. Firefighters soon arrived on scene to douse the blaze that ultimately "scorched roughly one-fourth of an acre of brush below the transition road" from the 91 to the 710. It took about 15 minutes to get the fire out; no one was injured and it had no effect on traffic. The cause of the fire is being investigated.
